Susie's journal chronicles a hectic year in the life of a stay-at-home mother, whose one ambition is to possess an outfit that is free of snot stains.

And thus were books with titles such as Secret Diary of a Demented Housewife by Niamh Greene (Penguin £1. 9, pp288) commissioned. It is the story of a thirtysomething woman who swapped a media job for the school run. She is neglected by her husband and feels that her sexual identity has been usurped by her maternal one. Frustration and nostalgia for the fizz of chemical attraction with a stranger lead her to a disastrous flirtation with infidelity. The book industry has always been driven by bourgeois appetite for sentimental and discreetly erotic fiction. Slummy Mummy and Demented Housewife are both self-deprecating and unpretentious. Both suffer from having their plots orchestrated into implausible crescendos. Of the two, Fiona Neill's book is the funnier.

When Susie's maiden aunt gives her a housekeeping journal, she expects Susie to use it for jotting down nutritious recipes and planning household budgets. But Susie has more important things on her mind. This work chronicles a hectic year in the life of a stay at home mother, whose one ambition is to possess an outfit that is free of snot stains.

This Niamh Greene book featuring Susie, is the first book I have read of hers and having read the synopsis was looking forward to an enjoyable read. Susie is a mother and housewife who has left work to bring up her two children. Her diary is that of a mum driven to the point of distraction by wayward children, a life where she competes with Eco-friendly school mothers and a best friend who needs a shoulder to cry on.
The first few chapters were very easy to get on with as we read and learn about Susie and her slightly deranged personality. She is a very funny character and one that I think you either love or loathe. Susie has a ridiculously long list of things she should be doing to make her the perfect yummy mummy, however she also has an even longer list of her crazy ideas and mad cap neuroses.

There were many points in this book where I was laughing out loud and some of the situations Susie manages to get herself in to. However, on the other side there were parts where I got fed up with her crazy ideas and wanted to tell her to get a grip. The humour was brilliant in places and I can't say that I didn't enjoy the book as I certainly did. I think many people who have a life filled with children, husbands and the every day responsibilities will certainly enjoy this book.

This book is the perfect escape read which will most certainly have you chuckling. It certainly isn't for everybody but if read and taken lightly will be a really enjoyable book. I really liked the writing style too and felt like the characters were easy to get along with and I will certainly look forward to reading more of Niamh Greene books in the future.

My British Sister-in-Law passed this over to me and I LOVED it. I was thinking, 'oh no, not another "diary" type chicklit book'..but I was so into it, I couldn't put it down. Niamh Greene writes such a humorous, true feeling tale, I was really hoping she wouldn't stop at the end. Kept thinking, hang on...keep going! Funny, sad...this book follows Susie as she tries to cope with a work aholic hubby, two kids, parents that are leaving the 'nest' and her BFF who is living the life she left behind. This book should be all over the states, selling like irish hot cakes. PS.I read half of it on the plane back to the states--great way to pass the time!

That is the question. If you watch ABC's Desperate Housewives, this book's main character is a cross between Susan Meyer and Lynette Scavo. This book is written in a diary format, which makes it really easy to take it on-the-go and not feel like you're stuck in the middle of a chapter. Just stop at the end of the day's diary entry. I work full-time, but this book brought me back to all the funny things that went on in my family when we were younger.
